Farside - Hamilton

Post by Cass »

Another jaunt to Hamilton took me to Farside, based upon the recommendation of a couple of locals.

Farside is a retro styled bar right on James, north of the Brain and Merit and just a couple of blocks south of the West Harbour GO. Super convenient.

Funky space with lots of retro touches (VHS tape displays, etc.) and a good beer lineup that’s focused on having a regular lager, IPA, sour, dark, cider, and ‘other’ that rotates around from different breweries. On this visit their other was Anderson Gingerbread which was nice to see as I hadn’t had it yet this year.

A cool space on the James strip which is a worthy stop along with the other good beer focused places here.

Oh, and I like that the pours are 20oz!
